Master’s Degree in Food Science at Oklahoma State University candidate Deepak Kumar Duraivelu Rajmohan reached out to PeasOnMoss through LinkedIn. He had heard the Culinology episode with Chef Barton Dewing and thought it was very informative about the food manufacturing industry. Over the past few months, he has interviewed over 50 professionals in the industry, asking them for advice about getting into the product development field and about skills that would distinguish him. In our interview we talk about mentorship, how and why he has reached out to so many professionals, and about his upcoming internship and why he felt it was vital to do one before entering the workforce. At OK State University, his research broadly focuses on flavor modification and organoleptic enhancement of Spirulina protein.
